Les ingrédients

Pour people
  • Duck foie gras lobe(s) : 1 whole
  • Fine salt : 7 g
  • Freshly ground black pepper : 1 g
  • Chinese 5 spices : 1 g
  • White port : 30 ml
  • Semi-skimmed milk : 200 ml
  • Water : 200 ml


  • ETAPE 1

    Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
    Mix together the salt, pepper and Chinese 5 spice.

  • ETAPE 2

    Remove the foie gras from the fridge at least 1 hour before preparing your dish. Soak in a mixture of milk and water to remove any impurities.
    Separate the foie gras into 2 parts and remove the veins from each part. Re-form the lobes once you have removed the veins.

  • ETAPE 3

    Rub the seasoning mixture over the foie gras, sprinkle over the port and marinade overnight.

  • ETAPE 4

    Press the foie gras into your terrine mould. Cook in a bain-marie in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes at 160°C. The centre of the foie gras should reach no higher than 50°C. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature. Skim off the fat and keep to one side. Refrigerate the terrine overnight with a weight on top to compact the foie gras.

  • ETAPE 5

    Remove the weight. Re-heat the fat and pour on top of the terrine. Allow to set in the fridge.

  • ETAPE 6

    To serve: slice the terrine and accompany with toasted brioche.
